The location is right across the street from the main plaza and heart of Ubeda. I was surprised that somebody complained that the hotel was located on a hard to find alley, because: 1) Old historic Spanish towns are supposed to have many small alleys; 2) If you go to the main tourist attraction you are right there; 3) Google...

The Location: The hotel is located just off the inner ring road, but iinside the city walls, a stone's throw from the magnificent main square. You can park your car in the street very nearby and you can drive up to the front door to drop bags and people off. The location is very quiet. The Room There were five... More

This hotel is hard to find, on a narrow one way street, with no parking. Rooms are very small, barely 1 meter from the edge of the bed to each wall. Breakfast is not served until 9:30- not 9:25 or 9:27- and only for one hr. You must haul your own luggage, even if you are a woman struggling with... More

This small hotel on a cobblestoned street in the historical centre of beautiful Ubeda deserves its high praise. Not only for its tasteful renovation of a very old building but for its delightful owner, Jorge. Jorge was extremely welcoming and helpful and clearly passionate about both his hotel and town. Our room was quite small but very comfortable and well... More

Jorge, the owner of this hotel, greets and welcomes guests to his hotel personally. He has such pride in and affection for his hotel and the town and his enthusiasm is catching. The hotel is in a charming old building but does not miss out on any creature comforts. Our beds were comfortable and cosy, the rooms clean, the bathroom... More

This is a charming destination! We really enjoyed the interior décor, the comfortable remodeling of an ancient building, the individually named few rooms and the impeccable service. We were helped by a staff member who clearly loves his town and wants to help people experience the best of it--best times to see monuments, best times to enjoy certain restaurants. We... More

Can't recommend this hotel enough. Charm charm charm. Service service service. One of the nicest 'hotels' we stayed in during our 15-day trek through Spain. Jorge (owner) was fanstastic - such a classy gentleman. Showed us the ropes upon checkin and we never saw him again until breakfast the next day. Excellent breakfast in a classy room with a view...

What a disaster! When we checked in, we were met by someone who did not speak any English. She showed us to our room, which was not what we had reserved. Of course, one can not complain or argue if one cannot speak the language so we accepted the room. We had a bed that was no longer than about... More

Jorge is a wonderful and welcoming host. This hotel is a gem in an out of the way but historic city. Get away from the crowds and enjoy peace and a night walking the Renaissance plaza, after a delicious breakfast. The charming hotel and room is comfortable and nicely appointed. We spent 3 weeks in Andalucia, and this hotel is... More
